Distinguishable by its unique mesh grille — and by its supercharged 400-hp 4.2-liter V-8 — this is no ordinary S-Type.
Jaguar will be introducing this all-new S-Type R to the world in January at the North American (Detroit) International Auto Show. Jaguar fans will immediately notice this R is missing its signature hood vents, but sources tell us they’re not necessary and consumers would rather do without on this performance sedan. One minor change from these photographs – the chrome trim will likely be black.
Other noticeable changes include a new front bumper with a large air intake, auxiliary lamps and a lowered ride height with a multiple-mode suspension. Low profile tires and 18-inch wheels, along with new badging integrated into the grille, round out the new look.
